NCIHC Membership Fee Reduction Program

Thank you for your interest in the Membership Fee Reduction Program. We have had an overwhelmingly positive response to this program and have run out of funds at this time, thus the link has been removed.  Please check back in April 2025 for a new link. Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are received.

Please consider joining NCIHC's volunteer workforce by filling out the volunteer application. We are always looking for talented individuals to contribute and enhance language access in the healthcare system.

Thank you,

Debbie Lesser, MS, CI/CT, QMHI, CoreCHI™

Anyone who is in need of financial assistance and has never received this scholarship before. 

How do I find out if I am selected for the program?
